For the Love of Bridesmaids

TO HAVE BRIDESMAIDS, OR NOT? That can be an important question for today’s brides, particularly destination brides. “Do I need bridesmaids for my Cabo wedding?” or “How many bridesmaids should I have?” are common questions that we hear from some of our clients. What advice do our wedding planners offer? “The answer is a personal one that each bride needs to answer for herself,” says Elsa Dilasser. “Destination or not, the bridesmaid is about support and friendship not expectations or paybacks.” Of course, Claudia Morales believes “there is no other purpose for having a wedding party other than sharing love and laughter during this beautiful time in a woman’s life.” So, ask yourself honestly, think about it carefully, then ask yourself again. How many of your friends and/or family members genuinely fit that supportive bill? The answer should be your magic “maid” number, whether it matches the number of groomsmen, or not.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE BRIDESMAID? Offering emotional support, thoughtful guidance, hands-on assistance, maybe some comical relief, a couple reality checks here and ther, as well as a whole lot of dance floor antics seems to be the consensus! Anything beyond that, like hosting bridal showers and bachelorette parties, is just a bonus. And, who says you can’t invite your mother, grandmother or baby sister to the {bridal} party? “Try not to succumb to societal norms and peer pressure when choosing your bridesmaids. Instead, think about who really has supported you in your life,” says Elsa Dilasser.

HERE ARE JUST A HANDFUL of images of bridal parties from weddings we’ve done, including images of the bridesmaids seeing the bride in her wedding gown for the first time, taking some playful pajama-wearing selfies, sharing candid conversations on the way to the ceremony, and dancing up a storm at the after party. Moments in time with the women who love you, honor you, and wish the best for you… and vice versa! Take care of our bridesmaids and they’ll take care of you.
